Default The ultimate question

What is the best pc out there for sale?

So let's say I had unlimited resources. Which pc would be the best one that I could purchase for my home?

depends on:

what you want it for?

how "bleeding edge" you want it (I.E. how new is the technology)

and why you've determined that you NEED to buy a system...

but other than that... buying a gaming machine is still pretty over priced

Ok so let's say this is what I want it to do:

Play any game there is.
Have the best monitor and best graphics.
Have the best possible sound system.
Have so much space that I can hold all my mp3's and movies.
Let me be able to run a boat load of programs at the same time without getting bogged down.
Have cordless everything.
And finally make everyone at my office jealous of me.

What pc can I buy that would do all of that?

Oh and how much cash would that require?

So, are you going to build this or buy a pre-buit?

I have never built a computer in my whole life. Is it hard? To me it seems like it would be hard, I don't know where I would begin.

Wow those look pretty bad to the bone!

How hard is it to build a computer with my specifications?

It's not that hard. Just do some research, or ask around here.
